Today is the day that Texas A&M University becomes an official member of the Southeastern Conference! A&M is no longer a member of the Big 12, and is moving forward in joining the best athletic conference in the country, the SEC.
I can’t tell you how glad I am that this is taking place. I know it will be a challenge for the athletic program at A&M, but it sure beats sticking around in a conference that was run by the evil-burnt-orange empire known as t.u. I don’t care that we won’t be playing them any longer. That is fine with me. A&M has a much greater challenge in playing teams like Arkansas, Auburn, LSU, Alabama, Ole’ Miss, Mississippi State, South Carolina, Florida and host of other fine programs. It makes the season a lot more exciting and we don’t have to worry about our non-conference schedule being tough enough. In fact, Sports Nations has pointed out that A&M will have the toughest schedule in the country from late September to mid-November. That gets me excited.
Am I sad that A&M has left the Big 12? Not a bit. It was good while it lasted, but I’m glad its over. Texas A&M, welcome to the Southeastern Conference!
